When Ming's interview with John Humphrys just finished on Today I let out a rejoicant "yes!"
He was interviewed about the cash for honours investigation (note: not a foreign affairs issue!). He quite rightly pointed out that the Michael Brown donation has never been linked to any possibility of preferment.
When asked about the by-elections he said, before Humphrys could finish his question: "Great candidates, great campaigns, great results".
It was great to hear him speaking with great authority on the cash for honours issue, and in buoyant mood about the by-election results.
There was no interview with David Cameron, I notice. He must be having a bit of a lie-in.
